- Shawn Skager is just an everyday joe like you, who loves music and is lucky enough to be able to write about it.

And just for the record, Shawn believes that Rush's exclusion from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Hank Williams Sr.'s exclusion from the Grand Ol' Opry are crimes against humanity.
